[Review] The Best Cupcakes I’ve Had Out On The West Coast

“I really wish there was a 1/2 star option on yelp.

4.5 stars for Patty’s Cakes and DessertI was really impressed with their customer service I really love red velvet cupcakes but they didn’t have any up front when I arrived.  So I waited about five minutes and they brought out a freshly baked cupcake.  I also didn’t know about the free cupcake special if you mention yelp but the guy at the counter asked me how I found the place and I definitely received my free cupcake!  That was super exciting and I practically jumped up and down in the store.

These cupcakes just don’t taste delicious but they look it too!  As you take your first bite, you’ll discover a moist cake with a light and fluffy frosting. The frosting is not overwhelming and complements the flavor of cupcake.  I tried the red velvet, the pumpkin with cream cheese frosting, Chocolate with chocolate fudge and Chocolate with Chocolate Chambord Mousse.  All were delicious and they are definitely the best cupcakes I’ve had out on the west coast.

At $3 bucks a pop, I think these cupcakes are COMPLETELY REASONABLE.  I’ve paid a lot more for really crappy cupcakes so I definitely think that these are worth the money.

So why the 4.5 rating?  Well, because they weren’t perfect.  They didn’t give me that “I need to go back and get one right now” feeling that I have for certain foods.  Patty’s Cakes is where I will go back time and again for a good cupcake fix but I can’t say I’ll go out of my way to just eat these cupcakes.”

[Review] My Friend Said The Red Velvet Was The Best Cupcake Ever

“Tuesday morning cupcakes were flying off the shelf so fast I had to wait about 10 minutes to get fresh ones. I would give a 4.5 if I could, but I rarely give out 5’s especially on a first visit. First off, the owners are so nice, I love that it’s a community bakery. I did do the Yelp special and got 4 cupcakes and you can’t be a free cucpake, but only ate 1. I had the white frosting on vanilla. The cupcake itself was delicious and there was a nice surprise of a filling in the middle. The cupcake was very moist and I did want more. I liked that the frosting didn’t overbear the cupcake (like they do at Sprinkle’s). Though I wasn’t in love with the frosting like I was the cupcake bread. I brought some to share at school. My friend had the Red Velvet and she said it was the best cupcake ever. My other friend did not mention anything about the chocolate cupcake with white frosting and neither did my mother-in-law about the pumpkin. So I’m dying to go back and try the Red Velvet. My only hesitancy to come back as often is the price. For the size, it’s a little more than I’d like to pay, but with the Yelp deal, it’s easier on the wallet, but keeping in mind a coffee can be $5, it’s worth it as a treat.”
